Yesterday 7/16/14 the New York Times posted its first account of the Israeli strike that killed four young Palestinians on a beach in Gaza. The headline looked like this:
“Four Young Boys Killed On Gaza Beach.”
That headline appropriately conveys the horrors witnessed and documented by the Times reporters.
But at some point–around 9:00 pm, according to the website Newsdiffs–the headline was changed to the version that appears on the front page of the New York Times today: “Boys Drawn to Gaza Beach, and Into Center of Mideast Strife.”
